El Puente Pollada
In Peru when people need to raise money for a specific cause it is very common to hold a pollada. People sell tickets for the chicken potato and salad meal and then meet together to eat and fund raise. Our church young peoples' group will soon be travelling to Arequipa to attend a youth camp organised by the Baptist Convention, they are hosting a pollada to help with their travel costs. Tomorrow morning the food will be taken to a communal oven and cooked ready for the pollada after the church service. Hopefully we will have as much fun sharing the meal together as they did preparing it!
